Welcome to what’s rapidly becoming the most dangerous city in America! It shouldn’t be a surprise considering the worst mayor in the country; Stephanie Rawlings-Dinkins, is at the helm trying to give more ways to give space to criminals.
Baltimore Sun reports with three men killed in eastside shootings on Sunday, Baltimore recorded its deadliest month in more than 40 years.
The 43 killings in May surpassed the 42 homicides the city saw in August 1990, and left Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake defending police and her administration.
Speaking at a morning ceremony to honor McKenzie Elliott, the 3-year-old killed by a stray bullet in August, Rawlings-Blake said it’s time to stop finger-pointing and assigning blame for the recent violence.
The killing of African-Americans in Baltimore has to stop, she said, noting that 189 of the 208 killed last year were black men. For the city to improve, all homicides need to drop, she added.
“We have to do better,” the mayor said. “We have to want more.”
City Councilman Brandon Scott, vice chair of the public safety committee, echoed that theme, saying it’s time for all Baltimoreans to have honest conversations about ways to stop the violence.
There isn’t one solution or one person who shoulders the blame, he said, adding that homicides affect all residents in the city, not just those in the poorest neighborhoods.
